It sounds like you need a new battery and/or battery charger. I had the same problem with a simular camera before and just replaced both the charger and the battery because I wasn't sure which one of them was faulty. I haven't had a problem since then. I bought them from the website www.needbattery.com the company guaranteed thier batteries for a year and thier price was the cheapest on and off the internet that I could find. They have both batteries and chargers for your specific camera. This should take care of your problem. Hope this helps

Battery won't hold a charge in camera, but batteries are new


Hello Sonja, Try a firmware update for the CX7430 available at Kodak website listed under SUPPORT, be sure to get the firmware download for your model camera ONLY !!!!! If this does not help, some of these batteries that come from China are very low quality and have had them discharge sitting on the shelf !!!! Try Duracell or Other name brand battery, watch out for some sold on E-Bay as many are very low quality.
Best Regards, Russell

Hello Sonja, Are you using good premium batteries, If they are old they may not retain a charge.

Will not hold charge


If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

My camera will not charge. It was purchased just short of a year ago, so here is no reason for the battery to be broken. It will not charge at all when the memory card is inserted and when it is, the...


Hi, It almost sounds like the battery won't hold a charge anymore which means you need a new battery. Since the camera isn't quite a year old yet I'd suggest contacting Nikon and seeing if they'll do anything for you before you buy a new battery.

My camera wont stay on it bleeps once then turns off


That sounds like your battery could be dead/not hold a charge. If you've charged your battery already and your camera still won't stay off and turns off right away, it's time to purchase a new battery for your Samsung TL105.

You can purchase replacement batteries quite cheap here:

Camera turns off itself


This is likely because:
  1. You are using the wrong types of batteries (Alkaline, Ni-Cd or Ni-MH batteries are recommended for digital cameras) NOTE: don't mix different types.
  2. The battery is out of charging cycles and won't retain charge. (Most rechargeable batteries can be charged only about 1000 times after which they won't hold charge)
  3. The batteries aren't 'powerful' enough. (low quality rechargeable batteries with low capacity shouldn't be used on digital cameras, Always buy batteries specialized for cameras (from camera stores or studios))
  4. The wrong battery type is selected in the camera's settings. (Most cameras let you select the type of battery you are using from it's settings. Browse through the settings and see if this is the problem)
Hope that fixed it. Good luck.

My polaroid A800 will not hold a charge. After taking a few pictures the batteries go dead. I use Polaroid batteries.


The Polaroid are good batteries, but! by your description they need to be replaced because it won't hold a full charge.
